Chiropractic Medicine

The practice of chiropractic consists of the examination, assessment, diagnosis, treatment, management, and prevention of disorders related to the spine, pelvis, joints, and the nervous system.
These include but are not limited to:

• Back, neck, jaw, hip, arm, and torso pain,
• Headaches
• Referring pain into your arms or legs
• Repetitive Strain Injuries
• Work, Artistic pursuit, Sports, Daily life-related injuries
• Arthritis
• Where other conditions exist chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Many artists seeks chiropractic treatment not only to reduce pain but also to reduce the negative effects of stress, to maintain mobility and good range of motion, and for general wellness care to allow them to live, work, and create at their best.

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on, health care discipline that focuses on removing interference to the proper functioning of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Your spine gives your body support and movement. It also importantly protects your spinal cord which connects your brain to all the body’s systems. When there is disruption in the mechanics of your spine this doesn’t only cause pain and discomfort, it can interfere with the function of your nervous system. Chiropractic care ensures that the joints of your spine and in fact all the joints in your body are functioning well. This is achieved through highly skilled, specific and precise adjustments to the joints to reduce pain and irritation and restore proper joint movement. Chiropractic treatment may also include soft tissue and myofascial therapy, as well as addressing nutrition, and lifestyle. The care that you receive is customized to your specific needs.
At The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre, the context of your presenting complaint (whole body, lifestyle, artistic discipline) is considered by your chiropractor. This allows us to address the cause and symptoms, and to maximize function and the potential for health.
